Here he is. Learning to sail with his instructor Shane.
As mentioned before, we were finally able to give Ethan his gift. He really enjoyed it and enjoyed hearing that he was a natural from the instructor too.
Finally, a picture of Ethan’s birthday cake. Now, to be clear, Caroline baked the cake but she did NOT decorate it. The kids did. Quite creative when you know what they were doing. The white (whipped cream from a can, yikes) are waves. The blue and green items are shark gummies and, of course, there is a pirate on a raft in the centre who is protecting himself from the sharks. He also needs to protect himself from the impending fire from the candle under his arm which melted part of his arm (oops, sorry about that).
The cake was delicious. The toppings, perhaps a little much. Alas, the adventure continues.
It’s birthday time around Legend. This time, it’s our big boy, Ethan, who is celebrating his 11th birthday. So, please help me wish him a Happy Birthday.
Again, details as to what we actually did to follow.
Here are some more views from the beach…
Sunshine’s, where Matthew was loving being able to practice his flags. I think he knows more than me… ya, ya, I know… don’t say it
Legend – from the beach. [on the right]
The Boys – probably negotiating the rules of a game…. or a treaty…. or…. dare I say it…. a mutiny!
Okay, at this point, I feel compelled again to mention that the boys are still doing schoolwork. They have spelling and spelling tests just like normal. They have presentation assignments, and today Caroline even had them doing a bit of a scavenger hunt to find Caribbean things.
More “appropriate” shots of the boys.
